Coping with Oxbridge rejection watch


    (Original post by philerus)
    Haha, thats the college I realised I should have applied to once I had already submitted my application? Did she get in, if you don't mind me asking?

    And I think that, should you decide to go to the LSE, we will be coursemates for half our modules. I'll probably be attending a few philosophy lectures too.
    Why would you say that? I honestly feel like I dodged a bullet there!

    No worries, she got rejected for biology.

    Cheers! What do you think about the LSE 100?

    I feel like dodged a bullet with my original college too. As for Merton, I visited during interviews it and was really impressed with the feel of the place, as well as by its history, size and architecture, although when I was choosing I had an irrational aversion against it. This might have had something to do with any person who knows anything about Oxford cringing when they heard the word Merton.

    As for LSE 100, if it does indeed deliver on teaching you approaches from all the social sciences, then I am quite excited about it, as, had time and regulations allowed it, I would have aimed to study as many disciplines as possible, purely out of interest. What do you think about the course?

    If you'd like, we could exchange contacts through PM so thst we don't annoy people here with LSE chat

    Yes, I applied for fun - to see what they're like and to see what I could learn from them, had no intention of going (I don't even want to study Natural Sciences...)
    That is a fair enough answer. Yes, you would have learnt from the experience and I don't blame you for not wanting to study Nat Sci

    You'll get over it.

    And 12 months down the line, you'll be one of the top students at a top university, having the time of your life, meeting new people and enjoying yourself both academically and socially. No regrets. Its for the best.

    Is anyone thinking of re-applying this October?
